Ingredients

2 dried guajillo or ancho (sometimes mislabeled pasilla) chilies (about 1/2 oz. total)
1 peeled clove garlic
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
Salt

Preparation

1. Rinse chilies. Snap off and discard stems; shake out most of the seeds. With scissors, working over a 1- to 2-quart pan, cut chilies into 1-inch pieces; drop into pan.

2. Add 1/2 cup water, garlic, cumin, oregano, cinnamon, and cloves. Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat, and simmer, stirring occasionally, until chilies are soft, 10 to 15 minutes.

3. Pour chili mixture into a blender and whirl until smooth. If you have less than 1/2 cup, add water to make that amount. Add salt to taste. Let cool at least 15 minutes.
